The Floating Restaurants “Solar Orchid” by SPARK Architects

As Singapore  is a city that includes both the street food heritage and beautiful waterfront, SPARK Architects propose a new type of restaurants that are not on waterfront but they are floated on water. They called it: Solar Orchid project, a mobile, reconfigurable and sustainable floating cooked-food center.

It is a modular design of multiple floating units of restaurants, each unit houses a different street food purveyor. Those units can be clustered together depending on their location. Due to their self-contained they can be totally disappeared acting like they didn’t exist.

The design feature of this project is the presence of inflated pillow-top with thin-film photovoltaic cells in the protective canopy that make it a solar-energy generator, powering  the restaurant’s built-in exhaust, water, gas, electrical, waste collection,  and water recycling services.
